Mercédès Meyer said:
In ancient Rome audiences have grown tired of viewing gladiators fight to the death. Something new is needed--women.
Horribly rapey exploitation movie
But among the named women is the ‘evil instructor of the slave girls woman’ trope
And she talks to the other women about their duties, etc
Passes 3/3
